O. B. Buchana - "Hold on to What You Got"

I love this song.  O.B. says that you need to hold on to what you got because the grass isn't always greener on the other side - it just looks that way.  He makes a statement that what is old to you is brand new to someone else. Think about it. You've gotten bored with your spouse/significant other and stop doing the things you used to do.  Be careful when you start thinking like that because someone else may be looking at her or him and see all the great things you used to see.

"Hold On To What You Got" is taken from O.B.'s “Starting Over” CD.  Here is his bio (taken from Soul Blues Music: http://www.soulbluesmusic.com/):

Born in Mound Bayou, Mississippi, Buchana spent his childhood in Clarksdale. O.B. began singing when he was only eight in the gospel choir at his Baptist church. By the time he was a teenager, the gospel group – “Mighty Suns Of God” - selected him to be their lead singer. In the early 1990's, O.B. signed with the record label -Blue River - and recorded his first hit single, "Back Up Lover." His first disc, "It's Over," followed to critical acclaim. Next, he signed with Suzie Q Records for "I Got Caught." His career has truly taken off after signing with Ecko Records.
